Reading The Bible - how where when?

Girls, I need your help with my Preach for the Word and Worship event
7.30pm Saturday 19th March.

I'll be talking about us flourishing and growing as Christian women - and part of that is us personally reading the Bible. SO...what are your tips, routines, hints? How do YOU read the Bible? Where? When?
I'd love to hear your stories - things that help you and things that hinder.
Oh yes, and remember there's no condemnation!!!
This is an area of following Jesus where many of us can feel guilt because it can be really hard to regularly spend time reading the Bible and praying. It's hard!
But one of the things I want to say on Saturday is that there is GRACE , not guilt; and we can help one another in this!
So please leave a comment or email me and I'll include your stories - and help eachother

Remember to tell your friends and other women you meet - flyers are available at Kerith reception and you can read more information online on our page of the Kerith website. Let's do all we can to make sure that all women know about this evening.
I really believe it's going to be a great event for ALL WOMEN - all ages, all stages of our Christian lives - hope to see YOU there too! x

Hey!I find that reading my bible in the bath, or if I'm having a shower I'll read my bible for 5/10 minutes after the shower. xx

I use YouVersion on my iTouch & read the one day daily devotional in bed as soon as I wake up. This means I don't forget to do it and it sets me up for the day. I generally read the whole chapter instead of just taking the one verse it highlights.

I sometimes read the verse that's been highlighted that day just before I go to sleep at night. In the past it's helped have a great & peaceful night's sleep.

From time to time I also enjoy picking up my 'proper' & favourite Bible (the one with real pages!) and reading about characters, recently Abraham, Noah & Joshua. I'm just about to start Ruth.

It's not always easy to decide to read my Bible but it's always more rewarding than the DVD or TV programme option :0)

I am who I am meant to be said...
I downloaded a daily bible andriod app. I love it! Everyday I get new scriptures some long some only a couple of verses. I find I look at it serveral times throughout the day, which I really benefit from. I find it does actually make me think about what God may be saying to me.

Guest Blog: Esther in Indonesia

I'm delighted to welcome Esther Ross-Watson to my Blog today! She is a dearly loved member of our Kerith family. She and her late husband Michael served as missionaries for many years. Esther bravely made the decision to travel again, and she has recently returned from Indonesia. Here's her story: 

Whilst Michael was on his last days on earth in August 2017 he received a request from the Island of Madura, Indonesia asking us to return to the town of Pamekasen, Madura, Indonesia where we had begun our Missions work in July 1973 exactly one year after we were married. They were keen to have us see what God had been doing in the years since we’d moved on and we excitedly said ‘Yes’ we will come!Obviously that had to go on hold for a while because I didn’t feel I could, or even wanted to go alone!
Anyway around March/April time 2018, I begun to feel a gentle nudging of the Holy Spirit urging me to think some more about it! It was like a feeling of wanting to know for myself what had …

3 Little Bottles

Thought I'd mix it up today and do something lighthearted here.

I popped into town this morning (as an aside, anyone else still incredulous that "new Bracknell / The Lexicon is so great and that it's really here to stay?!) 
Anyhow, I popped into town for a quick wander and bought 3 "essentials" I'd run out of, so I thought I'd share them with you - and of course I'd love to hear about your 3 recent essential purchases.



1 Contact lense solution
I've worn glasses since Secondary school, and contact lenses since I left Uni. Gas permeables - great for me - slightly perilous in swimming pools / the sea / other people's sinks (£80 to replace). They work for me - and so a couple of bottles of solution each month keep me going.I ran out a couple of days ago, so it was £4.70 well spent for clean lenses and clear eyesight.

2. "Buffet" by The Ordinary
This was a new one for me, a present I received last Christmas. I LOVE it and can't recommend i…

Paula's Encouragement

I love a podcast!
Podcasts get me through situations where time might drag, or perhaps I've got some time to myself - I'm think a bike work-out at the Gym; a long car journey; or food for my mind and soul whilst I'm cooking.

I've just got back from holiday, and having missed a couple of Sundays, I have caught up with Kerith podcasts, listening to three outstanding preaches from Ben Pocock and Ben Oliver in Bracknell; and Heather Pocock in Sandhurst - I found myself wanting to join in with a few loud "amens" this morning at the gym!

What about you? Let me know when and where do you listen to podcasts?

Our guest contributor today is the wonderful Paula Ridgway - with her large heart , great enthusiasm and infectious faith, she is such a huge blessing to many at Kerith. 
Over to Paula for her encouragement to simply gather a few friends, to listen to a podcast together and then talk about it and see what God is saying. 

"Podcasts are great if one misses out on a …
